Hastings Bonfire Procession 2010! - Smugglers Adventure!

I always love the events that go on in my home town, there aren't many places that have quite so many crazy things going on - the pram race, street parties, bonfire procession, fireworks, pirate days, etc etc... This year I was lucky enough to be involved in the bonfire procession with work. We held our Smugglers Adventure banner, collected money for charity, sung sea shanties all whilst dressed as pirates! It was such brilliant fun!


On our way down to the old town from Smugglers Caves... There were a LOT of steps to carry our galleon down. Luckily we had lots of strong piratey men to lend a helping hand :)





As part of the procession we were allowed into the special fenced off area around the bonfire and after the fireworks we had the whole place practically to ourselves! We all sat around by the bonfire in our pirate gear singing songs and drinking rum and a good time was had by all!

It would be great if you let me tell our students from Poland, Latvia and so on about your blog, as they'll enjoy all the stuff about Hastings.
All the very best with the teaching. There's a lot more paperwork since my day.
